Ukrainian Neo-Nazis Demand Resignation of Avakov and Dekanoidze

Translated by Ollie Richardson


Neo-nazi’s from “OUN”, “Svoboda”, and “Right Sector” demanded the resignation of the Interior Minister Arsen Avakov and the head of the National Police Khatia Dekanoidze inside the building of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. They also demanded not to impose the presumption of innocence of the police.

The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine is preparing to bring a package of laws into Parliament in order to expand the rights of the police on the principle of “presumption of innocence of the police”. It was noted that these legislative changes are aimed at giving police more rights when interacting with people who will have to obey, having the right to further appeal against actions of the law enforcement authorities. However, the Ukrainian neo-Nazis categorically position themselves against the introduction of the presumption of innocence of the police.
